i've never had one. no need since i can't wear polish, i'm constantly washing my hands & having them in sanitizer. (i'm a lunch lady at my kids school) so i don't have a clue what all they involve. i would imagine more than file & polish. my question is this; do they do anything for the cuticles? trim them? push them back? etc.
the reason i'm asking is that my 8 1/2 year old has a really bad habit of picking at her nails. she doesn't bite them but she'll pick at them & half the time she doesn't realize she does it. they are in such bad shape. hardly a nail on any finger but the cuticles are the worst. i hate to look at her fingers they look so bad.
i was thinking of getting her a manicure to get her cuticles in shape but wasn't sure if they do such when you get your nails done.
